have a great weekend. right now listen for more on verizon. "the street" crew will have that for you. we'll be back with you on monday. >>> as becky said, 171,000. that is the jobs number for october, well above estimates, carrying a lot of political fuel with election day just five days away. good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl caquintanilla with melissa lee and david faber. not just the 171,000 for the month but positive revisions we'll talk about in a moment. a busy day in europe as well as we start to talk more about the big events that will happen with the eurozone, both central banks and the greek government that starts next week. >>> our road map starts with the jobs number that beats even the highest expectation on the street. 171,000 is the number with another 84,000 in revisions higher for the past two months. unemployment ticks up to 7.9% as the participation rate rises. is the number really as good as it looks? >> the death toll from sandy now stands at 94 as more than 3 million homes still without power now facing colder weather, gas lines stretch f
to bail them out again. >> flooding in homes and businesses. verizon sent out a picture of the lobby of one of their big buildings not far from here during the night of the storm. there was a foot of hudson river in there and that's a case for a lot of different things down here in downtown new york and throughout. let's not forget it wasn't just new york. new jersey perhaps hardest hit of any particular state. >> i wonder how little we know. i was watching tv. we were having helicopter problems. suddenly there is atlantic city in real life. you realize that chris christie had what we were looking for on google maps. suddenly you realize, holy cow. this is katrina-like. loss of life, no. but property. where did it go? >> the mayor is going to ring the opening bell here this morning. the president apparently reportedly this morning wanted to visit manhattan. bloomberg said i can't spare the cops right now. he's going to instead visit the jersey shore with governor christie. that's the level we're at where we're not able to receive the sitting president of the united states. it says a
the roll out. my blackberry, we saw verizon work fine in lower manhattan. not as good for my iphone, which uses up more bandwidth. one of the biggest issues post sandy is finding gasoline. lines in new york and new jersey are sometimes more than 100 cars deep. mary thompson is live at one of those. >> we're here in ridgefield, new jersey. if you were entering this rest stop, anyone who drives along the turnpike know this is one. if you enter from the north, you'll wait in line maybe 25 minutes. from the south, your wait could be longer. clearance thomas told us he waited for two hours. >> it's been horrible. lines long everywhere. ran out of gas once. survived it. got back on the road. then got up early this morning, like 7:00, get over there to get gas. >> the lines began forming in new jersey and on long island yesterday. a lot of gas stations in these areas aren't open because they don't have electricity and some have run out of gasoline though some are still selling diesel fuel. the supply chain disrupted, too, making a bad situation worse. a number of terminals here in the new jersey,
. for example, can they get all the data feeds in and out? this is in a sense a verizon issue, got to make sure, and that's one of the things, probably the single most important thing right now. they have to be able to test and make sure they can get in and out all the data feeds. they have been testing the backup generators. they functioned beautifully overnight. you saw the red, white and blue at the entrance there with the columns working very well, fuel is there. they got to make sure that people can get there. hopefully, and there's some hopeful signs, that the brujs and tunnels will be open. again, they do not need the subways open. they have lists. they have about 200 people at the new york stock exchange for the floor to open, lists of how to carpool people in. any damage in to the facilities outside of the area that might be important, the building itself i am told is fine, but there may be some other outside buildings that may be important that they have to check out, and finally, in the event that there's an issue testing the backup plan. >> all right. with all that in mind we take t
